Fire destroys cabin at camp on Sylvan Lake 

A fire destroyed an unoccupied cabin at a sleep-away camp in the Town of Beekman.

The fire, at Camp Kinder Ring, a Jewish overnight camp for children on Sylvan Lake, was reported at 12:05 a.m. Tuesday, authorities said.

The camp was closed for the winter and no one was in the cabin when the fire broke out, police said.

Construction workers were in the cabin Monday, sanding and refinishing the floor. Investigators are looking at construction material and equipment as a possible cause of the fire, said Dutchess County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. John Watterson.

The Town of Beekman fire department put out the blaze, he said.

The fire department could not immediately be reached for comment.


That's bad. The security should have been more alert.
